I Am Missing. Naming himself Richard Kite, he spends the next ten months desperately trying to find out who he is. But despite media appeals and the efforts of the police, no one knows him. But Raker has more questions than answers. Who is Richard Kite? Why does no one know him? And what links him to the body of a woman found beside a London railway line two years ago? You Were Gone. Three days after Christmas, a woman walks into a police station. She has no phone and no ID, just a piece of paper with the name of investigator David Raker on it.
She tells officers that Raker is her husband. When he turns up at the station, Raker is stunned. The woman looks exactly like his wife. She knows all about their marriage, their history, even private conversations the two of them had. The woman tells the police that Raker had a breakdown. A respected doctor backs up her account. Could Raker have imagined their whole marriage? Is he delusional? Is this really the woman he loved and grieved for? Hunted by the police, Raker will have to find out the truth before it costs him everything — his memories, his sanity, his life…. No One Home.
At Halloween, the residents of Black Gale gather for a dinner party. They eat, drink and laugh. They play games and take photographs. But those photographs will be the last record of any of them. With no bodies, no evidence and no clues, the mystery of what happened at Black Gale remains unsolved two and a half years on.
But then the families of the missing turn to investigator David Raker — and their obsession becomes his. What secrets were the neighbours keeping from their families — and from each other? Were they really everything they seemed to be? And is Raker looking for nine missing people — or nine dead bodies? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Never coming back. Chasing the dead , dead tracks, vanished. Have more downloaded on kindle ready to go. Keep them coming. Just loved Broken Heart the first book i have read in this series. Tim Weaver is a new author to me and i have passed Broken Heart onto my sister in law and she is hooked as well. You will see why in Book 9 You were Gone. Love a mystery. Tim Wearer has grip my imagination and I am not an avid, reader, has I am dyslexic, but down loading with kindle on audio, reading along, IPod the books come alive, thank you author Patrick Ayling. Vanished was excellent, a riveting read.
Highly recommended. I am Dyslexic Tim Weave David Raker has held attention, I read all of the authors books except, the dead tracks Just about to start read, can not wait the new Book. How can Seth save a world he never knew existed with magic he never knew he could wield? Can he be taught and wrap his mind around what is happening in time to save a world that he is coming to love the longer he is part of it? Can he find the link from his past that will tell him what to do and how to win the battle over evil and dark magic? He is more than willing to try if it means saving and helping the female warrior that came to his world and saved him and asked him for help.
She is more than a magic wielding warrior in Seth's eyes. She is a beautiful woman who seems to be capturing his heart in the process of helping him discover who he truly is. I was caught up in this book from the moment I started reading it. It was so full of action, adventure, magic, mystery, evil, and a twist of romance that I couldn't help but keep reading. The characters in this book are truly amazing as is the plot. I never once had a moment of wonder if I should or could continue reading!
The action and wonder of this magical book just kept on flowing. I felt like I had a movie going on in my head as I continued reading and envisioning the vivid, wonderful story taking place. I read this book in only 2 short days and was left with my head reeling and wondering when the next book will come out by this terrific author in this magical series.
The twist of the Time Weaver and the settings being two different worlds old and new just made the story that much more interesting for me. I found at some parts of the book I couldn't read fast enough to see what was going to happen next. Seth really handles his new found magic quite well, but the beautiful warrior helping him along the way may have something to do with that. This book had it all, magic, adventure, romance, dragons, and much much more! I very highly recommend this read for anyone looking to bring some spark into their reading day.
I can't wait to read more of Thomas A. Knights books in this series as they come out! I just have to see what other adventures Seth gets taken on as he finds more of the "true" him deep inside. Originally posted at Bibliophilia, Please. The Time Weaver starts with a small jump back to the main character's childhood, where his father, ominously and mysteriously, has to leave the family as "he" has found them.
Then we jump to the main story. Seth is a software designer Funny thing is, the author is also a software designer. If I were to write a book, I'd definitely make my main character a translator. Sorry, The Translator. Handsome, charismatic, charming and swashbucklingly awesome. It Originally posted at Bibliophilia, Please. It would also be in the genre of fantasy Ok, moving on. There's a car crash. Time stops.
A huge ass werewolf thing rends space and time and claws its way to Seth, our main character. Who promptly proceeds to metaphorically shit his pants and run like hell. I would too, mind you.
I may be swashbuckingly awesome, but mama didn't raise no dum-dum. If you leave this blog learning nothing but one thing, let this be that one thing. Run away from big ass hairy things. Unless you're into that sort of thing. In which case, have fun! It starts good. I enjoyed it a lot. And as you read on, it gets better. And better. When I thought Seth would go one path, the normal fantasy drag-things-along path, BAM, fireball to the face.
Seth felt out of place and confused and scared shitless, but when push came to shove, he got things done. None of the usual stumbling along, never quite mastering your powers until the very last second, good guy doesn't kill a fly cause it would be wrong. Allow me to grab my light sword, which I materialized out of thin air, and skewer you like a kebab. I said good day. There was self-doubt, and running away, and crying.
But only to a manageable degree. If I were attacked by a 12 foot beast thing and dragged to another world through a lightning emitting wormhole thingy, I'd be mildy nervous. So I can't judge others, fictitious characters or not. I bring this up because self-doubt in main characters usually annoys me. It didn't this time. I liked two things the most. I feared the characters would be predictable.
The old arch-magus. The smart-alecky bard. The fierce stubborn female warrior. I was pleasantly surprised. They were not formulaic at all, even if they did seem so at first. Not sure if it was actually the case, or if my preconceptions made me think of them that way. Regardless, I liked them all.
I agreed with their choices pretty much at every turn. I was sad when some of them died. Happy when some of them didn't, or did.
There was this one douche that had it coming, but didn't get it. But there's always book two!

It starts out normal, for a fantasy that is. And then it grows. And grows. And doesn't really stop until the end. Characters develop, the story unfolds, it expands, it breathes. I stayed up till 1am to finish reading it. Didn't play Skyrim awesome game by the way. Didn't watch Doctor Who awesome show if you haven't seen it for some reason.
I found this book to be that good. I'm really looking forward to book two. I hope the author gets a few of the kinks out. There were some points in the book were I felt something was a bit off, but couldn't figure out what it was - didn't detract from the experience though. I hope it lives up to my expectations and the potential the story, and the author, have. And I hope I get to read it and review it. Great story, great characters, great read. Happy little reviewer here.
Jul 16, Elloise Hopkins rated it really liked it. He dispatches Malia, a highly skilled Swordmage, to cross over to the other world and fetch the Time Weaver. My first impression of The Time Weaver was that the characters were all instantly likeable and so I was pulled immediately into the story and found myself rooting for them as the dangers grew. My second impression was that there is something incredibly unique about it. Nothing that happened was predictable or overly familiar, and nothing I had heard of the book before reading it prepared me for the scale of the story nor of the other world that is on offer in Galadir.
I think the strongest element of the writing here is the voice, which remains consistent throughout, and balances just the right amount of confidence, narrative knowledge and lighter tones to keep the reader interested and empathising with the characters. This leads into another great main strength — the protagonist; I felt he was a good rendition of a modern fantasy hero as he struggled to come to terms with his new life and his abilities having been completely removed from his comfort zone very early on.
Sometimes the traditional fantasy elements — dragons, magic, monsters and so forth — contrasted a little too sharply with the technological and scientific elements for my taste, but this did not detract from a story that was sound in its execution and is more of personal preference than any fault with the story. The pace of the book is good and there is no lack of action at any point. If anything, occasionally the pace was perhaps too much and I felt pulled from a scene before I had time to fully digest what had happened or reflect upon it. Nonetheless this is a thoroughly enjoyable read, a strong introduction to a tale that is in no way lacking in scope or possibility and certainly the start of an epic adventure.
Elloise Hopkins. Dec 05, Mary Cushnie-Mansour rated it really liked it. As a little boy, Seth Alkirk listened to his father's fantastic stories, but one night he overhears an argument between his parents, and then his father disappears. The story then jumps ahead to Seth's 30th birthday and his world takes on another dimension - in essence he comes into his own and becomes what he was born to be - a Time Weaver.
Seth discovers he is now able to open the Thomas A. Seth discovers he is now able to open the mysterious book, the only thing he has left of his father's possessions, but when he finally does open it, it is filled with strange symbols and a language he is unable to decipher. He takes the book to a friend who might be able to discover its secrets. In the meantime, Seth is involved in a vehicle accident, and then he is attacked by a creature not from earth. He has no idea where he drew the power from, but he actually is able to temporarily strike the creature down; however, he is soon overcome by its brute strength.
Enter a beautiful maiden warrior from another dimension - Malia Corsair. Malia has been sent by the great wizard, Merek, from the land of Findoor, to retrieve the Time Weaver before the dark forces get to him. She barely manages to escape back to her land, having to drag an unconscious Seth, and fight off the police force trying to stop her from re-entering the portal between earth and her world.
Of course, she does not land right at Findoor, and must journey to get there. The evil forces are intent on getting to Seth, who at this point appears to be the last of the Time Weavers, and therefore of utmost importance to all sides. Along the way, Malia and Seth meet up with Cedric, a traveling Bard, who assists them to get to their destination, and also helps Seth to begin to handle this gift he seems to have been burdened with.
Everyone keeps saying that Seth is the son of Krycin, the Time Weaver who once defeated Gladius, the dark lord. The dark forces are on their heals, desperate to harness the powers of the Time Weaver. Cedric leads Seth and Malia to an old friend of his - a golden dragon upon which Seth's father used to ride.
Together, they make haste to Findoor, hoping to get there before it falls into evil hands. Along the way, Seth becomes more aware of the immensity of his power, and when he reaches Findoor Castle, Merek assists him in the handling of his powers before the dark army arrives. Not to give away anymore of the story, take the journey with Seth - you will not be disappointed. The twists and turns the story takes will leave you breathless and wanting to keep turning the pages. This series is a must read for those who love to read fantasy.
Sep 05, Holly rated it really liked it Shelves: favourites , magic , fiction , fantasy. This was a fantasy book that appeared to follow the usual routes but with a bit of a twist, and it was done very well. It starts out with a battle approaching a castle, introducing a number of characters and the main evil one. It then jumps into our own reality with a software developer on his birthday. Time freezes when he gets into an accident, and then he gets transported to the world of Galadir, but thats not the end of the story in our reality.
People witness the aftermath of a fight with a This was a fantasy book that appeared to follow the usual routes but with a bit of a twist, and it was done very well. People witness the aftermath of a fight with a monster, some casting of magic and our MC disappearing through a huge rift in the fabric of space and time, the army and scientists become quite interested in this series of events and begin investigations. That particular aspect I really enjoyed along with something I have never come across before - an explanation of how magic could actually be performed in clear and feasible scientific commentary - I loved that, the blending of reality and fantasy and the possibility that magic could exist for real.
There are also soldiers, dragons, beasts, magic, violence, gods and all sorts in this novel to keep any fantasy fan entertained and happy. There are parts of the book which felt a bit unnecessary, such as parts where characters walked into rooms and closed doors, took off their boots etc, sometimes an entire paragraph of something a character did, which lead to nothing, but I didnt mind that so much - I think perhaps it was an attempt to bring more realism into the scene at points where perhaps in a film the camera would cut away.
My only fault would be that sometimes it felt like things weren't properly fleshed out, for example at one point seth needs to use some magic, tries and fails, one sentence later he manages perfectly fine, and it is written pretty much like that, so it pretty much detracts from the original attempt.
However I still really enjoyed this and will definitely be reading the next one. Sep 03, Charlie Kravetz rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Fantasy readers of all ages. What an exciting, fast-paced fantasy. What do you do when your entire world is turned upside down in the blink of a second? How does an everyday person, who is nothing special, cope with a new world, new powers, and a family history never before heard? This is a fantastic story of one such person, a very special person that is called a Time Weaver.
This book is very fast-paced. It is exciting. It is an imaginative story told in a way to allow enjoyment, fear, and love to flow throughout the b WOW! It is an imaginative story told in a way to allow enjoyment, fear, and love to flow throughout the book. I was not thrilled that the ending of this story leaves me wanting more!
This book is great reading. If the authors goal was to write a book that the average fantasy reader would greatly enjoy, he truly succeeded. And, if the authors goal was to write a book that would leave the reader wanting more, he succeeded. I would recommend this to all fantasy readers who enjoy a fast-paced, exciting book. If you can't stand waiting for the next book in the series, wait until it is published before grabbing this one. However, I would grab this now, so when the next book is released, you are ready for it!
I will be getting the next book when it is ready, myself. I will probably read this one again, just to be sure I am ready when that next book comes out. Many thanks to the author for supporting Reglue. Aug 29, Karen Smith rated it really liked it.
The Time Weaver Chronicles
This is the first book in a series. It is the story of Seth, who finds himself drawn into an epic battle in a parallel world when that world intrudes on his own. Your typical average Joe, Seth discovers things about himself and the father he hardly knew. He finds power magical and personal , love and a dragon. This is a well edited novel with a well-crafted world. The secondary characters are complex and potentially interesting in their own right.
If I had to say what I would like to see improve This is the first book in a series. If I had to say what I would like to see improved on, I would say Seth. His conflict, confusion and terror at the strangeness and danger this run-of-the-mill guy is thrust into does not come through. His internal journey and battles with his own perceived past and the revelations should be as powerful as the battle scenes. Jul 06, Mary Ellen rated it really liked it Shelves: first-reads.

I really got into this book and finished it very quickly since I wanted to know what would happen next to the characters. The book is well-written and subplots dovetail nicely. The whole time I read, it was easy to visualize this book as a movie. I came to like the main characters and still have some unanswered questions, so I'm hoping there will be a sequel! Jan 02, Kelly rated it really liked it Shelves: goodread-first-reads. I won this book with good reads first reads so first off thanks.
I really enjoy the land of Galadir and the way the author created a wonderful setting. I love the way the world works and how the natives speak. I feel right at home in his fantasy world and I care about the characters. However, as with the first novel, I felt less at home back on Earth.
The moments on Earth were clumsy and clunky. The interactions between characters felt awkward and unbelievable to me, which was a shame because I enjoyed seeing those from Galadir get used to the way Earth works with all of the technology. These moments were the only ones that pulled me out of the story a little bit. Fortunately, not much of the story actually took place on Earth.
Most of the scenes were short, also. The majority of the plot focuses on the land of Galadir, which is why I rate the books so highly. I loved the way Reprisal ended and thoroughly enjoyed the chaos, war, and drama between the characters in the land of Galadir.
I highly recommend The Time Weaver Chronicles to anyone who enjoys fantasy. The books are fun, adventurous, and well written. Mar 04, Sheila rated it really liked it Shelves: paranormal , relationships , romance , scifi-fantasy , suspense , young-adult. The series starts on earth with an ordinary man pursued by the thoroughly extraordinary. But now this ordinary man, Seth Alkirk, returns, while the extraordinary people who have become his friends battle for lives and lands in faraway Galadir.
There are some thoroughly enjoyable scenes, set on earth, where magicians learn the mysteries of cellphones and cars. The evil are wounded. The strong can be weak. And hope is an engaging thread throughout the tale. With great battles, great characters, and a beautifully imagined world empowered by a risky but nicely authentic magic, Reprisal completes the story in classic style, and leaves enough characters and situations in play for us to hope the author will write more. Disclosure: The author kindly gave me a free ecopy, and I offer my honest review.

It answered a lot of questions I had begun to consider after the previous two books, and had more of the characters that I really liked read:cedric There was also quite a lot of action and travel between 'our' realm and the fantasy realm, which I rather enjoyed.

However the end of the story has an authors note detailing how this is the last time-weaver story, but I feel there are a lot of loose ends to not have another one, perhaps those loose ends could be tied up in another book set between the same realms but without Seth, but I'm not entirely sure if that is what the author means.
Guess I will have to wait to find out. Regardless I will definitely try and pick up anything else I see by Thomas A Knight, as I really did enjoy this series.
